Done Deal: 2 Browns Draft Choices Sign Contracts
CLEVELAND– The Cleveland Browns have all their draft choices signed to contracts except for the first round choice, Barkevious Mingo.
Early on Friday afternoon, when all rookies were to report to camp, Armonty Bryant, the 7th round pick was signed to a four-year deal.
Around dinner time, the team announced that defensive back Leon McFadden agreed to terms of a four-year deal.
Selected in the second round (68th overall), McFadden started 45 of 51 career games at San Diego State (2009-12).
He registered 188 career tackles, eight interceptions, 39 passes defensed, three sacks and a forced fumble. His 39 pass breakups set a school record.
McFadden also returned 17 punts for 116 yards (6.8 average), blocked an extra point and returned two of his interceptions for touchdowns.
He became the fifth player in school history to be named first-team All-Mountain West Conference three times.
Mingo, the 6th player overall selected in the 2013 NFL draft is still looking for a deal and it’s expected the situation might remain a stalemate through the weekend.
Mingo was a defensive star at LSU.
